KHSL — The national gas price average spiked by a nickel on the week to $2.23, but it's expected to push cheaper this week, according to AAA. The majority of the spike is credited to Hurricane Laura. All but five states saw state gas price averages increase. Of those that jumped, nearly 20 state averages are five to 15 cents more expensive.

Chico gas prices have risen 0.5 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.13/g today, according to GasBuddy. Gas prices in Chico are 4.2 cents per gallon higher than a month ago and stand 44.3 cents per gallon lower than a year ago.
